Now Playing Utah and the Utah Division of Arts & Museums have broadened the annual Free Night Program to include theater performances throughout the month of October. Free Night of Theater is an initiative of the Theatre Communications Group that strives to initiate more interest in live theater. If you’ve yet to become a patron of live theater or if you’re an avant garde, this program provides an easily accessible opportunity to experience some of the finest theater performances Utah has to offer.
Instead of being restricted to one night of theater, as has been done the past four years, the program has been extended, offering more choices and performances. The program also now operates with a new enter-to-win model, where patrons have two weeks, between Sept. 9-23, to peruse participating theater performances that are scheduled the month of October, then pick their top five choices and submit to win pairs of tickets in a random drawing.
Theater companies interested in participating in Free Night of Theater are invited to contact Jason Bowcutt, performing arts coordinator for the Utah Division of Arts & Museums, [email protected], 801-236-7554.
The following theater companies are participating: Cache Valley Center for the Arts, Empress Theatre, Grand Theatre, Plan-B Theatre Company, Pygmalion Theatre Company, Salt Lake Acting Company, Tuacahn Center for the Arts and the Utah Shakespeare Festival.
To enter to win tickets, visit FreeNight.NowPlayingUtah.com between Sept. 9-23 and click on the Free Night of Theater logo. Winners will be notified by email on Sept. 28.
